Default forged valve 08 accent

Hi, I'm in search for some forged valves for my gf 08 accent because I sort of toasted her stock ones and well just can't find any online.

I'm pretty sure you're not going to find any forged valves for the 1.6L. It's a crappy engine performance wise (and this is coming from someone whos owns a 1.6L). The engine is not built to handle a lot of abuse. You're best to rebuild it with OEM parts and then don't drive the crap out of it.

don't worry , i know its a shitty engine, and im not looking for performance , just want good ones that handle the high revs of this crappy engine , if i scrapped the oem ones even before the car reached 100 000km, then buying them again is a waste of money and time :banghead:

also I rarely do abuse this car , of course I raced maybe 3 or 4 times with it that's all. not even over reving it, but i do regular oil change and use synthec oil 5w-30 on it, so i don't know really if its because to much abuse,defect in them or something else wrong with the engine causing the valve to fuck up?

There must have been another cause for the failure then (defective part?). There are MANY people who have well over 100K miles on their Accents with no probs. I wouldn't hesitate installing OEM valves.


** what were you "racing" with the Accent? A bicycle? lol.
